So I guess [hw] is fading even here in Mississippi, where I had assumed almost everybody used it. OTOH, maybe the "Whales" in that paper came from the same mysterious source that produced a statement in a different paper that "Middle English literature reflected all people from aristocrats to pheasants." --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
